Nice idea. Could be very helpful for newcomers.

Why only us-keyboard? E.g. with the german keyboard layout
I have that is almost unusable. A command line option would be
nice, wouldn't it?

I have tested it on my ibook G4 1Ghz(radeon), and it is running at
the moment.

All the graphics related things work well (why is dri commented?),
I have only some trouble with the keyboard settings.
First, my "self made" AltGr-emulation and switching 
beetween the ttys did not work.
I commented out the the "macintosh" option and that helped.
For some special keys adding the line
Option	"XkbVariant"	"nodeadkeys" 
is also necessary.
While writing this mail I noticed there are still some keys
who don't work.
